A postdoctoral position is open in the Perception, Action & Cognition (PAC)
lab led by Dr. Joo-Hyun Song, Department of Cognitive, Linguistic &
Psychological Sciences (CLPS) at Brown University (Providence, RI).
We investigate mechanisms involved in integrating visually-guided action
and higher-order cognitive processes such as decision-making, target
selection, visual memory, and attention as well as visuomotor learning. We
use the techniques of psychophysics, behavioral measurements of eye and arm
movement trajectories, functional neuroimaging (fMRI) and EEG. General
information about the lab’s research interests can be found at
We are particularly interested in a postdoctoral fellow who can facilitate
a new collaboration with Dr. Dietmar Heinke at University of Birmingham, UK
to understand the relation between attention and action selection supported
by NSF grant (pending). This is a full-time, 1-year position with the
possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance.
The successful candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience,
Cognitive Science, or other closely related fields with a strong research
background in vision and action. The candidate must possess excellent
verbal and written communication skills, be strongly motivated, and work
well in a team setting. Excellent programming skills (Matlab/Linux) are
essential; expertise in advanced statistics or computational methods is
also strongly recommended.
To apply, please send a CV, a brief statement of research interests, and
the names of three references. Questions and/or application materials
should be emailed to joo-hyun_song at brown.edu
<joo-hyun_song+at+brown.+edu>. Preferred start date is summer 2019 (but
negotiable). Review of applications will continue until the position is
filled. Only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
